At Pediatric Hair Solutions, we believe in giving back to the many communities we serve. This December in Charlotte, we were proud to support a program that provides Christmas gifts to less fortunate families in the Charlotte area. The Explorer Christmas Project is a partnership between the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and the CMPD Police Explorers.

As part of the Explorer project, the CMPD partners with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools guidance counselors and teachers in elementary schools to identify children and their families who are in need of assistance during the Christmas season. To qualify for the program, these children must be eligible to receive free or reduced lunch at school. In addition, CMPD Officers and CFD Firefighters refer families with emergency situations.

The goal is for each child to receive at least three gifts, and provide each family with a gift card to a local grocery store to purchase a Christmas Dinner. If you would like to find out more about the CMPD Explorer Project or donate yourself, click here.
